A Public Information Event via Communications Officer at Scarborough Borough Council : 18th October 2016 "Onshore Oil & Gas the Regulators Event in Scarborough"
The Environment Agency, Health and Safety Executive, Oil and Gas Authority and Public Health England staff are hosting an informal public information session on 18 October to explain how they regulate the oil and gas industry to protect people and the environment.
Everyone is welcome to come along anytime between 2 - 7pm on Tuesday 18 October 2016 at the Scarborough Bowls Centre, Peasholm Road, Scarborough, YO12 7TT.
As regulators and agencies involved in assessing the impacts of the oil and gas industry our role is to ensure that any exploration and development, including fracking operations, is done in a way that protects people and the environment.
Local communities rightly look to us all to provide reassurance that health and environmental risks are being controlled and managed properly, and to hold oil and gas operators to account. This session will be a great opportunity for us to meet with local people, explain our respective roles and to discuss some of the key issues before sites are identified for development.
I also hope you may be able to help us publicise the session to local people by displaying the attached poster on any information boards you may have, or by forwarding this email to interested parties. We very much look forward to seeing you. Regards, Oil and Gas Team"
